A giant squid has been captured on camera in US waters for the first time ever.

Scientists at The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Office were on an expedition, when they saw the mysterious creature.

They discovered it in its natural habitat 2500 feet below the surface of the Gulf of Mexico.

It's believed the beast was 12-feet long and weighed a ton.
